So, you don't have ssh and scp, but you have plink and pscp.
And you're using Windows. I see at least 3 options:

- copy plink.exe to ssh.exe and pscp.exe to scp.exe
- (on an NTFS volume under 2K or XP) do the same using
   hard links
- create batch files ssh.cmd and scp.cmd, that will
   call plink and scp.
